Despite the fact that my boyfriend has expressed a disinterest in caring for a yard, I’m fairly certain that one day I will take on the challenge of owning some land. Lucky for him, my vision of a future outdoor area does not necessarily include an expanse of grass or oodles of high-maintenance plants. If I can create an outdoor space like any of those in the following pictures, I’d be thrilled.
What a darling nook this is. If your indoor dining room can’t pull the family together, surely something as fun and charming as this could! I don’t know if those string lights are fit to be left up all the time, but I hope so because they are darling. Apartment Therapy via the style files.
A couple of the images today are not technically outdoor, but are in fact sunrooms or 3-season porches. To me they still fit into the feel of an outdoor space, especially with so much plant life! I just love the blue on these chairs. The color coordinates perfectly with the bright greenery. Art & Décoration via Sarah Klassen.
A light snack followed my a light nap at this breathtaking spot would just about make my day. Via nicety.
While not fit for napping, I can imagine enjoying a morning cup of coffee here would be just lovely. Via nicety.
That’s right. A hanging outdoor bed. While this area as a whole appears to be from a resort or million-dollar vacation home, the concept is inspiring and a clever homeowner could probably create the look sans the ocean view. Via sea sex & sun.
Another adorable outdoor dining area. Who needs an elaborate table setting with an overhead view like that? And a chandelier. Outside. Am I the only one that things that is just awesome? Via buddha interiors.
